If Dollar Cost Averaging makes you feel better then go for it. I would buy $1000 of each for the next five months. The big thing is that you not wait because in your opinion the valuations are high. Start now either with all or part of the money. People that wait for the bear or the stocks to return to "reasonable" valuations before investing sometimes end up watching stocks continue to rise.

Look at Coke a lower double digit growth company. People have been calling it overvalued for years and years but the PE rarely has gone below 25 which is high from a Earnings valuation standpoint. The whole key is to pick great companies which you have and invest in them for the long haul. The bear may be several hundred percent up from here.(No one knows)
